On-demand authentication (ODA) delivers a one-time tokencode to a user’s mobile phone or e-mail account. On-demand tokencodes expire after a specified time period, enhancing their security. You can use ODA to protect web-based resources, such as an SSL-VPN, thin client, or web portal.

Enable ODA for users so that they can receive on-demand tokencodes.

ProcedureBefore You Begin

On-demand tokencode delivery must be configured for your deployment.


In the Security Console, go to the Home page.

Use Quick Search to find the user.

Select the user for whom ODA must be enabled.

Under On-Demand Authentication (ODA), click Manage.

For Enable User, select Enable user for on-demand authentication.

(Optional) Set an expiration date for the on-demand tokencode.

Enter the user’s mobile phone number.

1. Use the Associated PIN options to specify how the user's initial PIN is created. Create an initial PIN if necessary.

Click Save.
